The last movie by Alexandre Astruc,who was only to make MTV works afterward ,it has nothing to do with camera pen style,his former style,even to the smallest extent;it's an impersonal movie.The first part is rather dull,handicapped by a pointless female part (played by ex-James Bond girl Claudine Auger,who seems to think "I wish I could be somewhere else".
In April 1941,Germany invaded Yugoslavia without a declaration of war;aboard a destroyer ,opinions differ:shall we surrender or shall we join the British fleet in Malta?Two young lieutenants would like to continue the war,but their superior is a coward and it's a capitulation ."You should salute your new flag" he is ironically told as he is leaving the ship.In this second part,the movie takes off,thanks to convincing Gerard Barray.
Spoiler: the two lieutenants sacrifice their lives and serve as an example to their men : they will become resistant fighters.
